Quick Tips: The Four Steps To Change
The Four Steps To Change
We do not change when we see the light. We change when we feel the heat.
When we face a crisis, God asks us two questions.
1)Will we obey him?
2) Will we trust him to handle it?
We say yes to both questions and apply the discipline of persistence to our decision.
We admit where we are at fault.
The change finally takes place. We are no longer fighting God.
Gen 32:22-30 (NIV)
That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.
Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak." But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."
Confession (Jacob means liar)
The man asked him, "What is your name?" "Jacob," he answered.
Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome." Jacob said, "Please tell me your name." But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there. So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."
